Brought To You By The Number 1

Coach Nocks reported for his magnificent Middle School Cross Country team.

The Middle School Cross Country team headed to the Harrison Middle School Cross Country Invitational on Thursday October 1.  Who knew the date (the number 1) would be such a theme for this meet.  I hope you keep reading and don't just assume you know what the number 1 is referring.  

Cross County is similar to the sport of Golf, except there are no clubs, caddies, golf carts. golf balls, club houses.....well on second thought there is very little in common with Golf. (We love Golf and here is a shout out to the Wyoming Golf teams).  What we do share is how the scoring is done.  The team with the lowest score wins.   Leaving most of the technical scoring rules out, the place a runner comes in is their score and the score for the first 5 runners is added together to make up the team score.  To keep the reader entertained, here is a game, see if you can identify where the previously mentioned theme fits in.

Here are some highlights of the meet,
        7th grade girls were first  in the Team Race
                   Peggy Moore was 2nd (out of 86)
         Shelby Sash and Chloe Constantinides were in the top 11

        8th grade girls were second  in the Team Race.  They missed first by 1 point
